Takeda NAS Honesuki 160mm

Honesuki
The Honesuki is a Japanese style boning knife. Originally designed for poultry and small animals like rabbit. I promise this knife will change the way you think about taking apart a chicken. The Honesuki has a relatively thick spine for scraping meat from bones. Due to the hardness of Japanese steel you still wouldn’t want to force this knife through bone.

Care for carbon steel stainless clad knives

  • To maintain the edge, we recommend the usage of a Ceramic Honing Rod. Which can be purchased at 50% off with any knife purchase.
  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • This knife is clad in stainless steel to protect against rust and has exposed carbon steel cutting edge, giving you the best of both worlds. The down side though, is the cutting edge can rust if left to stand for an extended period of time. Over time a patina will form protecting the knife.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
